adding itv to sky box in ireland

If you’ve been looking forward to the Premier League ending and getting your friends and family back for the summer, I’ve got bad news. A year late, Euro 2020 has kicked off. Bizarrely, considering the whole pandemic thing, we’ve got a month of international football travelling around Europe. As is usually the case, you can watch this for free on RTÉ, but what if there’s a game on ITV? If you’re a Sky customer we’ve got you covered with this simple guide to add ITV to Sky.

How To Add ITV To Sky

ITV doesn’t come preloaded on your Sky box. However, you can manually add TV channels in settings once you know the configuration. Here’s how you do this.

  1. Turn on your Sky box
  2. Press “Services” on your Sky remote
  3. Select “Options” from the menu.
  4. Scroll sideways to the “Add channel” tab and enter these settings:
    1. Frequency: 10.891
    2. Polarisation: H
    3. Symbol Rate: 22.0
    4. FEC: 5/6
    5. Standard: DVB-S
    6. Modulation Scheme: QPSK
  5. Once all of these are set, press the yellow button to find channels
  6. Once the search completes, you’ll see loads of “ITV” options.
  7. Highlight one and press the yellow button
  8. Press the green button to save your settings
  9. Finally, press the “Select” button.

How To Watch ITV On Sky

Now that you’ve added ITV to your Sky box, it’s time to tune into the football. Unfortunately, adding a channel manually doesn’t assign it a channel number. This means the only way to access ITV is through the Sky menus. Here’s how.

  1. Press “Services” on your Sky remote
  2. Choose “Options” from the menu
  3. Scroll sideways to the “Other channels” tab
  4. Highlight “ITV” and press the “Select” button on your Sky remote.

And there you have it. You’re setup and ready to watch ITV’s coverage of EURO 2020 on your Sky box.

Why Watch ITV Coverage OF Euro 2020?

There has been a lot of talk around the pundits being selected for TV stations ahead of EURO 2020. More specifically, the talks have focused on BBC and ITV because they both have stellar lineups.

This is the main reason people are divided over where they’ll watch EURO 2020.

BBC EURO 2020 Pundits

BBC nailed down Gary Lineker, Gabby Logan, Eilidh Barbour and Mark Chapman as presenters for this summer’s big football tournament. Alongside them will be Alan Shearer (England), Alex Scott (England), Rio Ferdinand (England), Micah Richards (England), Ashley Williams (Wales), Mark Hughes (Wales), James McFadden (Scotland), Shelley Kerr (Scotland), Charlie Adam (Scotland), Cesc Fabregas (Spain) and Jurgen Klinsmann (Germany).

ITV EURO 2020 Pundits

Presenting ITV’s coverage will be Mark Pougatch, Seema Jaswal and Reshmin Chowdhury. Their pundit team is very strong, featuring Ian Wright (England), Roy Keane (Ireland), Gary Neville (England), Patrick Vieira (France), Graeme Souness (Scotland), Ashley Cole (England), Eni Aluko (Nigeria), Robert Earnshaw (Wales), Emma Hayes (England), Nigel de Jong (Netherlands), John Collins (Scotland), Joe Ledley (Wales), Nadia Nadim (Afghanistan/Denmark), Scott Brown (Scotland) and Andros Townsend (England).

The thoughts of potentially seeing Roy Keane and Scott Brown offer analysis on England games is mouthwatering.

The biggest shame in all of this is that Roy Keane and Micah Richard’s bromance has been broken up for the summer. Fortunately, you can watch them road tripping to Wembley together on YouTube.

Note: We’ve made a strong stance in the past about not featuring gambling websites on Goosed.ie. While this continues to be the case, we do want to highlight these videos because they are hilarious, despite being created by a gambling company. They are age-restricted on Youtube but remember. If you do choose to bet during EURO 2020 do so responsibly.
